In Hebraic Roots, Missionaries on 29/02/2012 at 13:23
A regular stream of Israeli and Diaspora rabbis, political, and community leaders are now gracing evangelical and messianic churches and television networks. They diligently sow the seeds of Christian love for the Holy Land and get to reap the benefits from inspired congregants via “offering baskets” and on-air solicitation.
But as various messianic Christian Hebraic Roots sects endeavor to implant themselves as an integral part of normative Judaism, Jewish leadership continues to be both mesmerized by the overtures and oblivious to the damage being done to the Torah, the land of Israel and its people.
Pastor Mark Biltz, leader of the messianic El Shaddai Ministries of Tacoma Washington, has the kind of christ-driven “pro-Israel” approach, which should cause responsible Jewish community leaders to abruptly about-face and pave a clear detour to ensure that the Jewish collective avoid stumbling off the path.
